14ers.com iOS App (v2)

Post by BillMiddlebrook » Thu Aug 29, 2019 1:06 pm

Today, I released a new version of the 14ers.com iOS mobile app which includes a tabbed interface, route bookmarking and a bunch of cosmetic changes. I've dubbed this the "Idiot" upgrade in reference to the d-bag on FB who said the app must have been developed by an idiot. :) I had planned on releasing this version prior to summer but didn't find the time to work on it until recently.

I'm still working on a bunch of features specific to the map screen (GPS tracking, route overlays, etc.) but I wanted to at least get all of the other new stuff released now.

If you encounter problems using the new version, please post in this sub-forum.

Thanks, Bill! Just downloaded and it seems like an awesome upgrade, even for an idiot.

Do nothing in haste, look well to each step, and from the beginning think what may be the end.'" - Edward Whymper

Looks great and more intuitive! Only one issue that I have ran into so far, and it’s really just a UI issue that does not affect functionality.

The segmented control appears to have multiple borders with different corner radius settings.

Got it, thanks! Looks like it’s happening on X phones.

I’m releasing a minor update to V2 in a day or so. It includes updates for iOS 13, bug fixes, an altimeter on the map and an improved topo layer, with route lines, on the interactive map.

I hope you find it useful

Thanks Bill, I like how I can still use the Maps setting without data when i'm in a newer mountain range section and want to double check the other peaks i'm seeing. I have had issues with the 13ers not showing up in maps, but not a big deal to me i'm still happy.
